    I see it as preventive maintenance. However, it's your car obviously.

    I'm very lucky no one went to see this in person.

    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    I was completely out of line with this post, I apologize. When building my hot rod, I was catching all kinds of advice that I didn't ask for. It was and is my car and I will do with it what I like and want(ed), same goes for you and you great roadster. I need to heed my own advice. But do I understand or am I mistaken you have traded already??

    No, that was a tongue in cheek statement, I hope to have this for a long time.
    No harm / no foul.
    Hot Rods are very personal statements, and I look forward to this build. Still trying to figure out the exact direction, but I've got it built 85-90% in my head.

    SO, now that it's up on a lift we find out that it used to be a hot rod that was later restored back to stock. The crossmember has been hacked for dual exhausts, and the driver's floor has been crudely replaced by lap welding. Perhaps for a battery? Easy fixes, but shows that somebody has been in there before, and I'm not modifying a pristine, original car. So many can now rest easy.

  12. Battery was on drivers side under floor originally. Did they cover the original battery access hole? Good looking car, I love that color

    The greyhound, lights, horn, grille guard and bumper guards are gone.
    Going to tuck the bumpers in a bit.
    Swapped over to '36 lights.
    Dropped / drilled '32 axle.
    Still 50/50 on the cowl lights. Tail lights are going.
    F100 steering box w/ '39 DeLuxe banjo.

    When it's done, I want it to look like a Ford executive from the '30's could have done it in house. I'm always drawn to cars that you look at and can't quite figure out what they did.
